SOLARIO RACING’S unnamed 2yo by Buratino went up the Rowley Mile this morning for just the second time in his life and he went very nicely indeed.
Ridden by Lemos de Souza, he did a warm up canter on the all-weather before working from the 7f to the 2f pole with an older horse. Previously when he’d been to the famous Rowley Mile gallops, he’d jumped off with his galloping companion but this was the first time he was asked to follow and then join up.
He was understandably a little green early on when asked to join but he soon got the hang of things and not only did he join up but he eased past his companion with ease. At the end of the piece of work, he was very much in control and never at any stage did Lemos have to get after him.
The horse looks fantastic and he enjoys his work and does everything himself without being asked any serious questions. He has a huge stride on him which is always a great asset for any racehorse as it means he can cover more ground with less effort.
The plan has been for this good-looking son of Godolphin’s Royal Ascot winner, Buratino to run early-mid May and he’s still on schedule to make his racecourse debut around then.
Purchased for 25,000 guineas at Book Three of Tattersalls Yearling Sales, he was the only Buratino in the sale but already he’s looking value for money. Nicely bred on both sides, he’s out of a three-times winning Arcano mare and his half-brother, Forefront has also won three times in France and has been rated 92.
There are just two 1/12th shares available in the horse who will soon be named. To see him working on Newmarket gallops and for more information, please contact the Racing Office on 01442 877 597 or email email@example.com.
